Construction is generally considered a costly affair, or is it? It's not just the utilization of resources (time, effort, and money) to raise our dream structure off the ground but also attend to the impact it has on the environment.
How many perceive it this way?
Do we care enough to perceive it this way?
Despite caring, who acts on it?
We know you were stuck in one of these questions. Well, it’s not too late. Here is a simple solution that has been right under our noses, BIM!
You might argue this is an expensive version of CAD. But is it really though?
Building Information Modelling or BIM is a sustainable approach using a variety of software that can help you create, manage, and maintain your construction projects in the most efficient manner.
In this article, we will discuss 5 ways BIM works in construction & how it drives your business.
Are revisions getting your projects stuck in the design phase?
Through high level 3D modeling, you’ll be able to create accurate documentation of projects. You’ll spend little to no time sending files for revisions. Hence, reduced time and cost on projects. You can also use BIM to create virtual models of your projects so that you can visualize the design before it is built.
BIM can be a great way to manage your project more efficiently. By having a plan in place before starting work, you can avoid potential delays and ensure that the project is completed on time. Additionally, using BIM allows for easier communication between contractors and clients, ensuring that everyone is on the same page from beginning to end.
Heavy investments but fail to make the most of it?
BIM helps to create accurate, timely, and coordinated plans, where the contractors can avoid wasting time, money and resources on projects that can be completed more quickly and with less waste. Additionally, by being able to see all aspects of a project at once, architects and engineers are able to identify potential problems well in advance and make necessary changes.
This is called, “Clash Coordination”. Overall, this leads to a more efficient, faster, and flawless construction. Isn’t this everyone’s dream?
Tired of using Dropbox back and forth?
With BIM 360 tool, organizing the construction project data is a breeze. Here’s the magic, the project data is generally stored in a central repository, making it transparent and accessible to all stakeholders at any given time. Any changes made to the data are updated live to all the stakeholders so they stay better informed of the progress.
That’ll make your life easier, doesn’t it?
We’d guess this is what you’ve been waiting for.
If you know how to allocate just the right amount of resources and time, well, obviously you’re saving a bunch of cash. When you don’t spend time on revision after revision and your construction goes smoothly, you’re simply saving time and money.
Several projects in the past were stopped due to budget overruns and BIM comes to the rescue to prevent your bankruptcy!
BIM is a powerful approach toward sustainable construction that can help architects and engineers, & contractors to build dream projects for their clients and save the environment simultaneously!
